Beauty amongst the weeds

Finding the beauty amongst the weeds of life isn't always easy. But it's there, somewhere, if you simply look for it.

It's there in the midst of the messy kitchen...

It's there in the midst of the chores that seem to keep piling and piling up...

It's even there amidst the waiting...

and the letting go...

Beauty and, yes, even joy are there in each moment...

If you choose to see it...

Isaiah 61:3 (NIV)

and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes,
the oil of joy
instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the LORD
for the display of his splendor.
